Solid album just like Part 1. I love that they came back with this double album, Audio Secrecy had me worried there for a while.
First thing I thought of when I heard the intro noise to Black John was Bioshock. Guess that means I've been playing too much of it.
sounding pretty good so far, first track is intense
sweet album cory taylor goes yyyeeehheaaahhh
Can't wait to hear this. Gonna wait until the 9th so I can buy it (coupled with the new Volbeat) and really get a feel for it. Will be a great week of music.
Listened to it front to back today driving back and forth to my band rehearsal, my first impression is that it's better than part 1. I really am pumped to listen to both parts together
They have never done a song like Red City before its awesome
I'd say my favorites first listen are Red City, Black John, Gravesend, and surprisingly, Do Me A Favor (originally I couldn't stand it, but it works perfectly on the album, it's grown on me a lot)
All of those tracks rule yeah. The title track is easily one of the best songs they've done too.
This band is the last I would've expected an epic concept album from, and they pulled it off really well, kudos to them
it gets better on each listen.
I like better than pt. 1 so far
Does this sound anything like their self titled? Didn't listen to Part 1 because I just heard it just wasn't that good.
pt 1 is their 2nd best effort so far. cant wait to hear all this
The final track, House of Gold and Bones is intense. Awesome.
Nah, sounds like hogabpt.2 that opener is really something they haven't done before
Yeah its seriously awesome they really brought out their full potential on this double album which is great cause they were always capable of more than just being another mainstream rock band that the radio overplays to hell
I thought it was much more poppier. I preferred pt1 personally
title track is glorious
title track is a beast
Not bad from first listen
The first track sounds interesting, might have to go back and listen to the first part to get the concept.
Not getting the hype for the title track though, unless there's another part to it it seems like sort of a crappy closer, especially for a concept album. But then again maybe I should actually listen to the full album.
i woke up today WITH A GUN
WHERE THE HELL DID THIS GUN COME FROM?!?
Man, I'm not really feeling any of these songs. I guess I understand that it's supposed to "flow" like a soundtrack and it's probably better in that context, but I'm pretty bored upon first listen of most of these songs.. nothing stands out so far.
I guess i'll give it another listen or two.
don't waste your time
I somehow don't like their sound anymore, too bad.
